For a second there I was feeling like I was on top of things in terms of getting ready for Christmas, but all of a sudden the race is on to get everything done in time. I’d like to say it’s because I have a baby, but I’m pretty sure this happens to me every year. I also do this fun thing where I start second guessing myself on all the gifts purchases I managed to make in a timely manner, and wondering if I should just return everything and start all over. You know, just to keep things interesting. Anyway, if you need a moment to recharge during this holiday season, here are some links for you to enjoy…

Tomorrow we’re flying to Wisconsin to spend Thanksgiving week with Ryan’s family – fingers crossed the plane ride with Caroline goes as smoothly as possible! Any tips for flying with a 6 month old? I’m also hoping to contribute a pie to Thanksgiving dinner, something seasonal but not obvious, but the truth is that I’m not much of a pie baker. I’m thinking maybe a chocolate pecan pie or this butterscotch pie, but I’m open to suggestions, so please share!

Caroline has decided that getting more than three hours of sleep in a row isn’t her thing, so Ryan and I are a little sleep deprived these days… which might explain why I’ve started this sentence seventeen times, only to delete it, start over, and still end up with something bearing no resemblance to the English language. So instead of trying to string words together in a coherent way, I’m just going to get out of the way and share some awesome links…
